Lisa began practicing yoga in 1998 and has been a Registered Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance since 1999. As a lifelong learner, she has a Bachelor's degree in Psychology and a Master's degree in Humanities. Lisa focused her Master's studies on Eastern Philosophy and Religion which allowed her to incorporate her love of yoga into her academic studies by writing a thesis on the contributions of Paramahansa Yogananda on the humanities. Lisa has a great passion for the eight branches of yoga and blends yoga theory from these branches into her classes as she guides her students through asana and pranayama. She believes that yoga is a lifestyle to be practiced on and off the mat and that it can positively enhance your life. Lisa currently teaches at Crafton Hills College and Inner Evolution Yoga Studio. She is married and has an 18 year old daughter and three dogs. Lisa is originally from Austin, Texas and has lived in Redlands for nine years.
